We all realize that being a director is a balance of understanding planning, politics, and people. What are the top books that you think every Planning Director should read and implement to be successful.

Personally, my list would start with:
  • How to Win Friends and Influence People People
  • Good To Great
  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
What books are on your list?

  • Use active voice
In other words, write effectively and efficiently.
